Why are certain crimes punished by death? Are there alternative ways of punishing people convicted of heinous crimes? How equally does India’s criminal justice system award the death penalty? How does identity and privilege play out in cases of capital punishment?

In this latest episode of Ye Bhi Theek Hai, Kunal and Sanjay take on capital punishment and ask why such punishment would exist in a modern democracy. They discuss the ethical and moral dilemmas that a society must confront when it decides to kill a person.
